Sadly, this is not a KERF homemade pizza 🙁 As much as I wanted to cook another fun dinner tonight, I got invited out for pizza and couldn’t turn it down! The husband has class on Thursday nights and has to grab something quick for dinner uptown, so my MIL treated us to pizza at FUEL, a Charlotte local favorite.
Because the husband has to be there by 6, we met at 5:00 for a very early dinner (snack!?). I took the lightrail up and got there at 4:30, so I decided to walk down East Boulevard, probably my favorite street in Charlotte, and enjoy the day. The picturesque sidewalk drenched in 75* sunshine:
For dinner we did a “build your own” half veggie, half husband pizza. My side had green pepper, tomato, spinach and mushroom and “his” side had pepperoni, jalapeño, green pepper and mushroom. All with part-skim mozzarella and a whole wheat crust! Pretty healthy for pizza out.
I had two slices. Although I could have eaten the whole thing!
I wasn’t really that impressed by FUEL. It was nice to have the healthy options of part-skim and whole wheat, but the sauce was rather bland. I did like the size of each piece though and the crust was great. It tasted fresh and healthy too (which is not your average pizza report!)
I also got a big chopped salad with cuc, tomato, celery, green pepper, carrot and iceburg. It was what it was. Honey mustard dressing on the side, of which I used about half a tbsp. The salad kept me busy and helped fill me up.
I got home at 6:30 with dinner out of the way and no dishes to do, so I decided to take advantage of the weather once more and went out with Eat, Pray, Love for another loop around the neighborhood. I’m whizzing through this book now that I’m not just reading a few chapters each night! The walk was so enjoyable, and now I’m settling in with some Physiology before I head to bed for more reading.
Tomorrow is spinning first thing, then my 2 classes, then whatever I can get done before we have our company arrive in the late afternoon. Then I’m headed Uptown for the big game!
